Have students follow along to identify 4 causes (e.g. God, Gold, Glory), 4 figures (e.g. Amerigo Vespucci, Christopher Columbus), 4 events (e.g. Finding the New World, Circumnavigating the Earth) and 4 effects (e.g. Nationalism and World War One) of the Age of Exploration. Also, have students work on the Columbus Stick Figure mini-biography assignment for homework, classwork, or group work. Thumbnail printouts of the 16 images are available for students to cut out and paste in the boxes as well. Enjoy!
